EATING DISORDERS OCCUPATIONAL SKILLS AWARD
The offering of an Occupational Skills Award (OSA) for Eating Disorders is pending and we anticipate offering the OSA in the Fall 2015 semester.
Those of you who wish to become Certified Addictions Treatment Counselors (CATCs) will be interested in adding the Eating Disorder courses to your resume. Doing so will indicate to future employers that you have an additional area of knowledge and expertise beyond addiction treatment. Clients in addiction treatment often manifest eating disorders which co-occur with substance use disorders. Eating disorder treatment requires a special knowledge base that addiction counselors do not receive in their certificate programs. Having this additional knowledge will prove helpful, if not essential to helping clients achieve and maintain sobriety. These courses are also useful for those who are completing the Human Services Generalist Certificate, the Corrections and Criminal Justice Certificate and/or the Mental Health Certificate.
